Tragedy struck our city on 5/14. 10 people were killed and 3 were wounded in a mass shooting at a Buffalo grocery store. Buffalo grieves for these victims and their loved ones and mourns the tremendous loss of life.

In response, Buffalo Together Community Response Fund has been established. Dozens of local funders, coordinated by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo and the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County established the Buffalo Together Community Response Fund.

To show support during this difficult time, Great Erie’s monthly “jeans/dress down” donations went to support the Buffalo Together Community Response Fund. “This collaborative effort is built upon our collective desire to take action to support Black-led organizations on the frontlines of addressing immediate needs in our community, long-term community rebuilding, and systemic issues that have marginalized communities of color. While still in the early stages of development, the group will listen and engage with the Black community to direct the fund’s resources for additional phases of the work.”
